Final Four 2012, Kentucky Vs. Louisville Score Update: Wildcats Hold 35-28 Lead At Halftime

The Kentucky Wildcats jumped out to a quick lead over the Louisville Cardinals, as the Cardinals struggled to sink shots and everything for the Wildcats went in. Kentucky cooled off and the Cardinals were able to collect themselves, but the Wildcats still took a 35-28 lead into halftime.

For the Wildcats, they once again put on a show of dunks thanks to some ally-oops by guys like Anthony Davis, who finished the first half with eight points, seven rebounds, and two blocks. Doron Lamb and Marquis Teague also finished up the first half with eight points each, but the Wildcats shot just 20 percent from the three-point line, hitting on just a single three-point shot.

Louisville was able to weather the early storm by the Wildcats and got the game back to a more manageable score at halftime. Chane Behanan led Louisville in scoring with six points and five rebounds, but the Cardinals spread the ball and their scoring around. Surprisingly, the Cardinals also wound up out rebounding the Wildcats at halftime 15-14, which left Kentucky head coach John Calipari heated as he went into the locker room.
